Take a Family Flight on a 1928 Luxury Airliner in Rochester
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is bringing the first-ever mass-produced airliner to Rochester, Minnesota and you're invited for a ride aboard a flight July 14 - 17, 2022 at the Rochester International Airport.
What's the Plane, It Looks Super Cool?
It's the Ford Tri-Motor, known as the first luxury airliner, "Recall the energy, passion, and excitement of the Roaring '20s...the Ford Tri-Motor redefined world travel and marked the beginning of commercial flight."
Liberty Aviation Museum's 1928 Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B, serial No. 8, flew its first flight on December 1, 1928, and has been fully restored to flying standards and is ready for passengers.
The current tour has only two Midwest stops:
